The iPhone (Nail) Series: Doodle Jump

Oh hello there!!! This series has been in the works for a long time, I originally had the idea for this series after my 31 Day Challenge, that was last year in July. I guess sometimes I forgot, sometimes I wasn't in the mood. Therefore it took over a year for this series to premiere but we're here now and I think this will be a good one. I'm a big fan of gaming and games on the iPhone (etc.). iPhone games are a great way for everyone to be introduced to gaming without realising. I debated where to start for this series but why not start at the beginning with the 1st game I got from the App store, Doodle Jump. Which is obscenely popular, available on many platforms with (debatably) dubious clones.

For my mani I have to Doodler with a jetpack, some platforms, a spaceship, a black hole and an enemy about to be killed by whatever the Doodler shoots. I was going to paint some notebook paper but I decided everything would look too busy so I didn't. I like how quirky the design looks and I'm always up for cartoons. Yeah I think it's quite cool and I like it :)

I have to say I don't play Doodle Jump anymore and I haven't played for years but when I did play it was pretty fun and I was ok at it, I was no pro but I didn't suck. It's easy for everyone to play. The high score thing keeps you playing, also in an update you could buy ninja gear if you collected some means of currency. I would've kept playing for that. Currently Doodle Jump is 69p (I got it for 59p, all the apps went up in price a couple of years ago).

White: Barry M - Matt White
Black: Lovely Me:Ex - Black
Mustard: Topshop - Naked
Green (of clothes and spaceship): Barry M - Mint Green
Green (of platform): Illamasqua - Nomad
Orange: Essie - Fear Or Desire
Red: Essie - E-Nuff Is E-Nuff
Yellow: Rimmel - Sunshine
Purple: Rimmel - Purple Pulse
Blue: Barry M - Blueberry Ice Cream
Brown (of pellet): The Face Shop - GL112
Gold (of spaceship ray): w7 - Golden Sands and Nails Inc - Glamour Glitter
I thought the glitter would be enough but it wasn't so I had to paint the gold over the glitter then paint more glitter, little thick but nothing the Color Club topcoat can't fix.

So that was the 1st instalment of The iPhone Nail Series, there's more to come of my favourite iPhone and other games. Hopefully these won't be too infrequent but I have to be in a certain mood. Thanks for reading and I hope you have a lovely day!! :)


  1. Nyeh, really missing out the iphones and androids fun :/ I did however, seen my brother played this game on his ipod I think. Really love the doodle-y character! It's got a really nice quirky design! :D And you did a fabulous interpretation of the game's art on your nails! I am definitely looking forward to more! :D

    1. There are SO many good games, it seems like near everyone has some kind of device to play games on nowadays, this is a particularly good game for anyone to pick up and play. Thank you lots!! I'm excited to do more!!! :D
